    In this game, you get to BE Sherlock Holmes... and Watson also.

    This is the first title from the Sherlock Holmes I've played. I'm not much of an adventure fan, so I'm very selective in finding which game to play. And how lucky I am as this is 1 of the rare adventu...

    Despite the lack of compelling gameplay, Sherlock Holmes Vs. Jack The Ripper is worthwhile because of it's story.

    The game takes you back once again to the Victorian Era with Sherlock Holmes, investigating the case of Jack the Ripper!

    An awesome game, but has some drawbacks.

    Okay, it's been a while since I played this game, so things are a little foggy, but I remember key points, so bear with me. I love Sherlock Holmes and most modern-day stories inspired by it, like Hou...

    Sherlock Holmes Vs Jack The Ripper, no matter what anyone says this is one of the best PC adventure games.

    This was my first in the series that I played so I cant really compare it to the previous games. But, all in all even with a few bugs like some random lip syncing issues this is a really good game. S...

    Anyone into adventure games should give this game a try, but expect something far from flawless.

    Gloomy streets and a madman on the loose.

    This game blends the truth and fiction. Jack the Ripper was the murderer in one of the most puzzling unsolved crimes in history. Sherlock Holmes is the most popular detective in fiction. This title br...

    Simply brilliant!

    This is my first Sherlock Holmes game. I began playing it after I'd started reading "The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes". It simply kept me away from the book until I've come to its end. The outstan...
